Review for Tucson Wildlife Center, Tucson, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Everyone here respects and gets along with each other! There is only support, no dissention. The director is a passionate and intelligent teacher, never shy to teach all she knows. I have learned so much. And experienced nature and animals in ways I could never have had the opportunity to know. Like how all species will travel their lifetime to get back home, if they become displaced. And how most species have strong family ties, even when the books say they don't.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the purpose I feel when doing all the right things for all the right reasons.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

courteous, friendly, passionate, kind, intelligent and very worthwhile people to be around.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

alleviate the suffering of many wild animals, educate the whole southwest on why wild animals and their pristine habitats NEED to be saved! Develop medical and other techniques that can be shared with the world, and so much more.

Ways to make it better...

I could spend more time and have more resources to help this organization.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the need for extreme growth in a short amount of time, without the resources to do it. They are trying to fundraise to build the first wildlife hospital in southern Arizona. It can't come soon enough. The number of injured animals has doubled every year!

One thing I'd also say is that...

They have no lack of doctors, veterinarians and medical staff who want to help. Facilities and operations money is the challenge.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
